Made In America And Priced Right. Henry Repeating Arms takes its name from Benjamin Tyler Henry, the man who patented history's first repeating rifle in 1860. In honor of this iconic inventor, the modern day firearms manufacturer resurrected the Henry name in 1996 and currently produces their rifles in two different plants -- one located in Bayonne, New Jersey and the other in Rice Lake, Wisconsin.

Today, Henry ranks as the number five leading long-gun producer in the United States, quite an impressive accomplishment considering the company doesn't even produce shotguns, bolt action hunting guns or tactical firearms, but rather specializes in nostalgic lever and pump action rifles. Inspired by the original Henry rifle, the Varmint Express .17HMR series is a Western style rimfire capable of rapid, accurate shooting.

Any fan of John Wayne will immediately recognize the profile and styling of this gun. The rifle has a nice heft and solid feel to it, enough that it will never be mistaken for a toy. Owing to its huge popularity is the fact that the Henry is anywhere from one-half to one-third the price of its nearest competitors and entirely made in the U.S.A.

At the heart of the design is an extremely smooth action. It is so smooth in fact that many first timers simply cannot believe the gun has any internal parts.

The Henry Varmint Express .17HMR is fed through a tubular magazine located beneath the barrel and holds 12- rounds. Loading is fairly straightforward -- simply twist the magazine cap and remove the inner brass magazine tube, then begin dropping rounds in through the loading port. Once fully loaded, replace the inner magazine tube and twist lock it back in place.

Already considered to be the most accurate rimfire cartridge ever produced, the .17HMR incorporates a .17 caliber bullet onto a necked down .22Magnum casing. This high velocity combination produces a scorching muzzle velocity of 2,550 fps with a 17- grain spitzer type bullet. The flat trajectory makes it the ideal long range varmint cartridge for coyotes, skunks, prairie dogs, Nutria (myocastor coypus), crows or squirrels.

An 20" full round barrel provides excellent down range accuracy. A highly visible set of Williams Fire Sights are included that track extremely well, even in low light. All steel parts, such as the barrel and lever, wear a deep blued finish. The receiver is black anodized. Weighing in at 5.75 pounds, the rifle can attribute its light weight and fast handling to an aluminum alloy receiver that has an integral rimfire scope rail for adding optics.

The Monte Carlo high comb buttstock allows a shooter to maintain proper eye relief when used in conjunction with optics. Both buttstock and forend are deluxe checkered American walnut that give the rifle a very pleasing and stylish appearance. While the Henry
Varmint Express .17HMR lacks a manual safety, it does have a have a half-cock safety that acts as a firing pin block, and works effectively at preventing the gun from discharging if dropped or banged.

A transfer bar safety prevents the gun from being discharged unless the hammer has been cocked all the way back, then trigger depressed. The rifle automatically returns to the safe position if the hammer is lowered manually.

For repair or maintenance, this family owned company arguably carries the best no nonsense lifetime warranty in the industry. Overall, the Henry
Varmint Express .17HMR is exceptionally smooth, accurate and reliable rimfire rifle made entirely here in the U.S.A. by craftsmen who take pride in their products.
